Collecting like terms at a glance

 

Collecting like terms begins with adding and subtracting single terms using coefficients and moves onto include constants and like terms involving powers (or indices). This will sometimes result in a binomial. There are applied questions involving finding the perimeter of polygons and collecting ‘like’ algebraic terms to simplify the expression for the perimeter. These involve rearranging terms and being aware of order of operations. At the end of the topic there are exam questions.

 

Looking forward, students can then progress to additional algebra worksheets, for example a simultaneous equations worksheet or a solving equations worksheet.
